Amazon makes it extremely easy to change your account password. You can do that from both the Amazon site and the mobile app. We’ll show you the steps for both these devices.

Change Your Account Password on the Amazon Website

On a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use the Amazon website to change your account’s password. If you haven’t decided on a password yet, check out our guide on how to create and remember strong passwords.

To get started, open a web browser on your computer and launch the Amazon site. Log in to your account if you aren’t already.

At the top-right corner of the Amazon site, click the “Account & Lists” option.

On the “Your Account” page that opens, select “Login & Security.”

You’re now on the “Login & Security” page. Here, next to “Password,” click “Edit.”

You’ll see a “Change Password” page. Here, click the “Current Password” field and type your current Amazon account password. Then click the “New Password” field and type the new password you want to use for your account. Click the “Reenter New Password” field and type your new password again.
